Step 5: Invoicing and closure: Value-for-money checks
of the safeguards built into the framework approach is scrutiny over value for money. We employ the services of a framework cost consultant, whose role is to provide cost checks for all work in excess of £30K and random checks for work below £30K. This helps to ensure that we deliver projects as cost-effectively as possible.
The random checks are carried out six monthly to ensure that our framework contractors are providing competitive market prices.
These arrangements are in line with University policy.
